Linda’s Nepal Project
It is Linda’s philosophy that there are two ultimate goals in life. ONE) Happiness – we seek it out everyday in various ways, consciously and subconsciously and TWO) have as few regrets as possible.
What has been found are those of us who are happiest tend to also be those of us who contribute to our world and their communities. There is an increase in feeling better and giving something back. In 2007 Linda signed on to help a friend who wanted to rescue girls in Nepal from child contract labor and get these girls into school. The “Scarf Lady” was born.
For the past 7 years Linda has sold scarves at every event she speaks at raising money to rescue these girls. They have since given out over 750 scholarships, built new classrooms for the girls to attend school in, bought bicycles for them to get to and from school.
Started a large micro credit program for their moms and taught literacy to the Moms as well. In 2013, they will build a school for disabled girls and women in Kathmandu, and add onto the school where most of their rescued daughters attend. Needless to say Linda is very HAPPY.
